Problems printing PDF documents in Windows 7

July 29, 2012 at 16:16:10
Specs: Windows 7, AMD E-450/4.0GB (3.6GB Usable)
When I am printing a pdf file, and the size of the pages is larger than the paper I am using, the printout is "cut off".

For example, I often need to download credit card account statements. Sometimes, the statement size is 8.5" X 17". The largest paper size that my printer can handle is 8.5" X 11".

If I print out the 17" long document on my printer, only the top 11" of the file will be printed.

How do I fix this? (This even happens if I print to a pdf printer such as Bullzip.)

Usually it is a function of the printer options such as fit to page.

FWIW, I have tried all of the printer options (such as print to page, shrink oversize pages, etc...), page orientation (portrait or landscape), etc...

I've even updated the printer drivers!

Unfortnately, nothing seems to help. I am assuming that it's a setting that I've overlooked (hence the email asking for help)

My next step is to uninstall the printer and drivers and reinstall it.

What reader are you using? Try installing Foxit reader and printing from Foxit.
~winipcfg

ASCII question, get an ANSI

The most immediate problem is downloading financial credit card data from the web.

My normal sequence is to log into the CC site, access my statement, save a copy of the statement to my HDD, close out everything, then open the pdf file I just saved, and print it ith Bullzip.

Where s there a reader in this?

"Where s there a reader in this?"

The reader is the program that you view the PDF in such as Adobe Acrobat reader. Winipcfg is suggesting you download the Foxit reader and use that instead of the current program you are using.

By the way, it is a huge security risk to save these pages to your computer.

You can also test some photo or other web page maybe to see if your fit to screen feature works.

Why is that. Its no more a security risk than any other document that may be stored on your computer.

OK, if you think it is safe, go ahead. No professional would suggest it. Why do you think your data is safe? It isn't. Too many hackers using automated tools to access data. Don't let your sensitive data be part of it.

I don't keep any personal information on a system connected to the internet.

Companies like Symatec state their products are not secure enough for them to be claimed safe for online banking.

I would find yourself a dictionary and look up the meaning of the word paranoid!

No, I was a victim of identity theft from credit card. It will only take you one time and then you will be like me.

It took me two years to get it fixed and countless hours on phone and letters and lawyers.

Identity theft and credit card theft is the one of the fastest growing crimes. They get their information that they need from people doing stupid stuff as well as people doing seeming safe things.

Go to any of the major security sites and see if their products are sold as safe for online banking. They know crooks can beat their software.

There is no way to discover if you have a rootkit. Exploits to the OS are discovered each day. Don't put your personal or financial on any web based computer.

Each year a contest to see how long it takes to hack into the major browsers and take over a system. Each year they fall to hackers in matters of minutes and hours. Once the attack is successful the hack can be done on any system. Why do you think they come up with patches to the OS and applications?
